Nonabox January Review

I have always liked the idea of subscription boxes, it's a box full of surprises every month, who wouldn't like that? But it's just something I have never signed up for, and I hadn't really found one that was for me. That's until I came across Nonabox and I instantly loved the look of them. For those of you who haven't heard of them, Nonabox create the box around your baby's age, well I say baby but Nonabox accompanies you from pregnancy up until your child's two. This is our fifth box, each box has contained six high quality products, lots of which have been new to me and I've really enjoyed being introduced to new brands and products. Here's what our January box included

Ella's Kitchen The Orange One 5 Pack - The Orange One is suitable from 6 months. They are quite small so handy for taking out and about, Osian enjoyed one this morning alongside his breakfast. Made from bananas, mangoes, oranges, guava and a dash of concentrated lemon juice. Osian's not too keen on eating oranges so I was eagar to see if he liked the taste of these, to my surprise he seemed to really like them.

Childs Farm Hair and Body Wash - Made with over 98% natural products and is suitable for eczema prone skin. Osian's eczema is really bad at the moment so I'm open to try new products to see if they help!

Ella' Kitchen Salmon Risotto - Suitable from 10, made from vegetable stock, salmon, carrots, peas, cheese, rice, onions, leeks and a little unsalted butter. I don't eat any seafood myself so I'm quite guilty of not cooking Osian fish often, so this is a handy meal for him, I'm going to keep this for the next time I'm in a hurry and having to make a quick tea.

Ella's Kitchen Veggie Moussaka - I hadn't seen this range of Ella's Kitchen foods before. It's a toddler meal suitable for 12 months plus, and can be eaten cold or heated up in the microwave. The meals made from lots of different vegetables.

cloud b Lavender Sheep Pillow - I'd never seen one of these before. It's a sheep pillow with removable lavender pouch inside. It's supposed to help little ones sleep, and I think it would have been very handy for tummy time when Osian was younger. It's lovely and soft. One of Osian's favourite things to do at the moment is to play pretending to sleep with blankets and pillows, so I gave him this pillow to play with and he loved it!

Ella's Kitchen Raisin and Prune Baby Brekkie -  Made from yogurt, prunes, raisins, ground brown rice, wholegrain rice flour, and a little concentrated lemon juice, I think this would be handy if we are in a hurry one morning.

WaterWipes Sensitive Make-Up Remover Wipes - I don't often wear make-up but have worn a bit recently because it was my birthday and I used these wipes before bed and they worked well. I do have quite sensitive skin and can't use normal wipes because they irritate my skin, these wipes didn't bother me at all.

Overall all of these products are suitable for us. I've been introduced to two new brands, I'd never heard of cloud b nor Childs Farm. Osian quite likes Ella's Kitchen meals and I'm quite happy with the ingredients so for us it's a good thing there's so many of their products but having so many food products may not be so suitable for other families. I do really like all the products but I don't find it as wide a range as previous boxes.

Disclaimer - I was sent the box for the purpose of an honest review, all words and opinions are my own.


  1. What a great box....Everything in it looks and sounds fantastic! x

  2. I have heard so many good things about Nonabox lately, it's definitely something I will think of for after this baby is born. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested
